Hey everyone,

We’ve disabled Battlegrounds Parties due to a critical bug affecting player MMR. We’ll update here once we’ve got Battlegrounds Parties back online.

We’re also aware that players who have not unlocked the Demon Hunter class can get stuck in a Duels run when trying to play as Star Student Stelina. The current workaround is to complete the Demon Hunter Prologue and fully unlock the class. We are looking into a fix for this, and the following bugs in Duels:

  • Turalyon, the Tenured can be offered empty loot buckets.
  • Book of the Dead does not count enemy minions that have died.

Let us know if you’ve encountered other bugs since downloading the new patch!

10/22 Update: We’re currently deploying a hotfix that will address the Battlegrounds Parties and Star Student Stelina bugs. Battlegrounds Parties will be re-enabled after the hotfix has gone live. The hotfix will take place on the server side, so you will not need to download anything if you’ve already updated to the 18.6 patch.

10/23 Update: We’ve got a few more bug fixes that will go out in another server-side hotfix planned for later today -

  • Fashion week has started in Duels and Robes of Gaudiness are now officially out of style. (Robes of Gaudiness has been removed from the passive Treasure pool.)

  • Loot buckets will now populate properly when playing as Turalyon, the Tenured in Duels.

  • Ranked Floors in Battlegrounds will now work as intended.

10/23 Update #2: We’ve encountered an issue with the ranked floor fix for Battlegrounds mentioned above. We’re now planning to ship that fix separately next week. Thanks for your patience!

10/24 Update: We’ve run into a few more issues that have prevented us from deploying the hotfix for Robes of Gaudiness and Turalyon, the Tenured to all regions. We’ll update here once the hotfix has been successfully deployed for everyone.

10/24 Update #2: The hotfix for Robes of Gaudiness and Turalyon, the Tenured is now live in all regions.

10/27 Update: We’ve deployed a server-side hotfix for Battlegrounds ranked floors. Ranked floors in Battlegrounds will now work as intended when queueing with a group.
